huh? sounds like you have a hosts file.
what ip address do you get when you type www.iis.net from a command prompt Should be this.

start, run, type cmd
then type ping www.iis.net

If google is resolvong to the local host then something is wrong.I would virus check your machine.

Have a look in your host file.
Win2k hosts file location:
Windows NT/2000/XP Pro c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
Xp hosts file location :
Windows XP Home c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
Is there an entry for google there?
Either way it is not an IIS problem you machine is redirecting to the local host 127.0.0.1 I am not sure what will cause this. Often it is virus related.

Here are a couple Malware / virus things you can download
I'd suggest running these.

wat is the location of the host file in vista?

same location as Rovarstar posted. You seriously need to consult a person local to help assist with your desktop, this forum is for IIS and related technologies, not so much general desktop support.

Can you check the image:
There are tools to check:
Using the command prompt >nslookup
Using the command prompt >ping
Using the command prompt >tracert
The command prompt tools name /? displays help
Try restoring the hosts file MS KB972034
the Article has a MS-Fix-It Tool to make it easy.
